  1. Can’t wait, this is probably the most substantial piece of technology I have seen in a while. What I can wait for is the price listings. Lol
    Maybe a World of Warcraft remake will be possible. I am sure a few million fanboys would shed a tear of joy on that moment.

    Cheers mate and nice post. 10/10
